I have a friend in our unit that uses bias ply tires only for that very reason. He seems to have more tire failures than those of us that use radial tires, but in the time I have known him (about seven years), he has not had any damage done to his trailer from the tire failures.
He claims it is the heavy and strong steel belt that does the damage to the trailer when the tire comes apart, and it makes sense.
